movie mass cure>> brian: the hit in benghazi on 9/11, we are talking about benghazi, libya. 16 days ago, was that a pon tanous attack like ambassador rice talked about and that was backed up by the press secretary over and over again. gradually things are coming out. we were misled but they knew exactly what happened within 24 hours, because we have assets on the ground in libya. >> gretchen: when the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice went on the talk shows it was a chest - orchesterated line. within 24 hours they knew it was a terrorist attack and how did they know that? they have to classify it as a terrorist attack to get the right people in action to go in investigate. that had happened. >> brian: there is a couple of problems with it 24 hours after the attacks we knew, there was intelligence knew. whether ambassador rice or president obama knew. i would have to assume they did know. they went everywhere saying we had no idea and blamed the movie. hilary clinton blamed the movie three times in the after math and jay carny blay amed the movie and president obama in the
of security we had in benghazi as inadequate. you're going to have to do an assessment of where we need to have these kinds of exposed facilities. and there's been a lot of criticism ever since the embassy bombings in africa in the nineties. i think you'll have to have these embassies and consulates be well protected, a place where you can hunker down and close out access until the threat passes. >> u.s. ambassador susan rice was saying this morning -- i'm sorry, she spoke yesterday. she said ambassador chris stevens, what het to see is us packing up shop and totally leaving. >> i think she's totally right. ambassador rice has done a great job, as has secretary clinton. we have to keep sending the message of staying in power, but it doesn't mean we have to be in unfortunate fide or unprotected positions. you're going to take some casualties, but it's a different sort of thing when an ambassador is killed. that suggests the whole mission is in jeopardy. that's what's going on here. people knew ambassador stevens, liked him, admired him. but also when an embassy and ambassador is attacked
on this at the moment. he says what happened in benghazi is a premedicated attack. it has nothing to do with the video. and there's always a video, there's always a cartoons there's always a teddy bear, there's always some prenext for the mob to go crazy. what is important is for free nations to say we around going to get into that game with you. and it's absolutely disgraceful the sight you showed, the people taking them in for questioning. >> this is a point we are going to get into. why, on the anniversary of 9/11, why did we learn that valerie jarret has more security as she takes her vacation in martha's vineyard, than on 9/11 at our embassies in cairo and libya? >> there's a credibility issue here. and it's easy to look tough by sending some guy to a suburban apartment in los angeles and sending a big posses of sheriffs to arrest him. where is the toughness when the al-qaeda flag is flying offer your embassy? >> what is he going to do? president obama, our embassies have been breached, our flag taken down and burned for whole world to see. what is he going to do about it? 1. >> he and mrs. clint
consulate in benghazi was a deliberate and organized terrorist assault carried out by extremists affiliated or sympathetic with al qaeda, a flat statement just issued. let's discuss the political fallout in our strategy session. joining us now, the democratic strategist and cnn political contributor donna brazile, along with david frum, contributing editor at "the daily beast" and "newsweek." david, a powerful statement just released by the director of national intelligence. it totally contradicts what the administration was saying in the days that immediately followed the killing of ambassador stevens and the three other americans. what do you make of this? >> totally supports what my colleague reported three days ago who was the first with this story. what it makes is the american ambassador dead, the administration's first impulse was to find ways to cover itself and avoid acknowledging the mistake the ambassador had completely inadequate security in a dangerous place. and it did that by pitting on this youtube video of the maker on his way to prison and charged under other offenses. in
on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. american violence is beginning to show signs of slowing, but tensions remain high. the state department is evacuating all family members and non-u.s. government personnel from tunisia and the sudan. we have a reporter on the ground in tunisia. >> reporter: shannon, no wonder the state department is concerned. we are back from the area around the u.s. embassy compound here in tunis. we scpaw heard amazing things. today, the compound is secure, tukneesian military very much present. but we are told they were nowhere to be found during key moments on friday, as protesters scaled the wall, mashed up the place before they were driven out. more shocking, is what we saw next door at the american school, that's a k-12, where over 600 kids of foreign parent, including 100 american children. take a look. at noon on friday, the playground at this tukneesian school would have been filled with young kids, some of them american. then the administrators got word that a violent protest was happening across the street at the u.s. embassy and the protesters could be comi
definitive conclusions. our assessment at the present is in fact it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired hours earlier in cairo where, of course, as you know, there was a violent protest outside of our embassy sparked by this hateful video. but soon after that spontaneous protest began outside of our consulate in benghazi, we believe that it looks like extremist elements, individuals, joined in that effort with heavy weapons of the sort that are, unfortunately, readily now available in libya post-revolution. and that it spun from there into something much, much more violent. >> schieffer: but you do not agree with him that this was something that had been plotted out several months ago? >> we do not-- we do not have information at present that leads us to conclude this was premeditated or preplanned. >> schieffer: do you agree or disagree with him that al qaeda had some part in this? >> well, we'll have to find out that out. i think it's clear there were extremist elements that joined in and escalated the violence. whether they were al qaeda affiliate
situation in benghazi between the u.s. mission in libya and the state department leading up to that attack. quote: we must insist on more timely information regarding the attacks and the events leading up to those attacks. and there is yet a third letter from senior republicans on the armed services committee, mccain, graham and eye quote. they want more answers as to why the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, made the statements that she did given what the intelligence was at that time. so i think what we're seeing now is some real momentum at least on the republican side to force the administration to explain why they said certain things publicly about this spontaneous attack when the intelligence said something quite different, megyn. megyn: catherine herridge, thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. megyn: well, as we mentioned moments ago, new polling suggests that president obama is way ahead in two critical swing states. but team romney and some polling number crunchers say not so fast. what is really going on here? in three minutes we'll go over the numbers and talk to them w
